DC Inno Cites ‘Powerful Year’ of Growth and Product Expansion for Global Leader in Phishing Defense, Orchestration and Automation Solutions

When do you know your company’s on fire? One sign is the company you keep. DC Inno, an organization that promotes innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia region, whose combined economy is one of the nation’s strongest and most diverse, named Cofense™ to its 2018 50 on Fire list of red-hot businesses.

In DC Inno’s own words: “Cybersecurity firm Cofense is having a quietly powerful year with several big-time contracts in the pipeline and a slew of products added to its capabilities. In May it released one of the industry’s first phishing-specific defense platforms, and was a finalist for best work culture at D.C.’s 2018 Timmy Awards.”

Cofense joins an elite group of 2018 winners, including global brands like Booz Allen Hamilton and Accenture, technology start-ups like Quorum and Hatch Apps, and regional success stories like Commonwealth Joe Coffee Roasters. Together, they are the region’s “most inspiring entrepreneurs and businesses… 50 people and companies that are truly heating up the DMV’s ecosystem.”

According to DC Inno, each 50 on Fire company has had a banner year in the regional innovation economy, marked by a round of new funding, recent product launches, growth spurts, or other breakthroughs.

50 on Fire is the latest in a slew of Cofense awards and recognition: Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Businesses (four years in a row), Finalist for Best SaaS Product in the Small and Medium-Sized Business Category, Washington Post 2018 Best Workplace, and CSO Online Best Security Software Solutions 2018 (Cofense TriageTM), to name a few.
